Everything Search not showing file/folder unless exact match

Post by takias » Mon Jan 07, 2019 12:43 pm

Until recently the as soon as started typing it would show the files and folders and I didn't need to put the exact filename, partial filename was okay.
But now unless it's matching exactly it doesn't come up in the search result. I just updated Everything with the latest version 1.4.1.924 but it didn't help. I am wondering if there's any setting that I need to turn on/off to fix this issue.
Please help :(

Did you turn on Search->Match Whole Word :?: :idea:
If yes - turn it off

Thank you Ovg for the reply :) it seemed to have been resolved.
I think I turned on match hole word by mistake (by pressing Ctrl+B unknowingly)
